Next week on Supergirl, Kara (Melissa Benoist) will come face to face with a new villain played by Jane the Virgin alum Yael Grobglas, and we have a first look.
When The CW's high-flying superhero series returns on Monday for a new installment, titled “Triggers,” Grobglas will make her grand entrance as psychic supervillain Psi, a thief with the ability to control people’s minds by tapping into their worst fears. Psi will attack National City (by hitting several banks), including the DEO and the Martian Manhunter (David Harewood), as well as the Girl of Steel — who seems completely powerless against Psi’s psychic attacks.
The DC Comics character was created in 1982 by Paul Kupperberg and artist Carmine Infantino for the pages of Daring New Adventures of Supergirl #1. A longtime Supergirl antagonist, Psi briefly became a member of the Suicide Squad, as well as the Black Lantern Corps.
Elsewhere Reign (Odette Annable), erm, Samantha(?), will start a new job at L-Corp. Now, isn’t that the perfect environment for the budding Season 3 Big Bad to slowly evolve from loving single mother to the Kryptonian bioengineered weapon of mass destruction known as a Worldkiller she's totally unaware that she is? Oh, and stay tuned for the arrival of Saturn Girl later this season. Check out the new trailer(s) and chime in with your thoughts:
